YetAnotherElsa Tue 18-Oct-16 16:28:01

I found Mammut jackets for £160 in my local TKMaxx. Still expensive but about £200 off full price!

I have had 8 years in the one I bought when pregnant and it's massive. It was in the sale too.... surely this means I can buy another one, right?

cleary I'm not going to mention the price of my super dooper trousers

Good luck on the job front lovetoski

lovetoskimum Mon 24-Oct-16 16:25:36

Thanks Don't, surely you can get a new one !!!

Something will turn up on the job front, kinda works in my favour, long notice period, good pay out and they are paying for me to finish my Swim Teacher course in Jan, at least I have the mountains to look forward too !! smile

Hope it works out for you at Snow and Rock lovetoskimum!

I bought a cracking pair of DC snowboard trousers in TK Maxx in Glasgow today. £40!!

Have enough to get me through to the new year, may just chill for a while, and think about the white stuff smile

Hi lovetoskimum

Me & DD2 are off to the Spanish Pyrenees for February 1/2 term. Must start getting my ski legs back, using the dry ski slope, first though grin

Tigresswoods Tue 01-Nov-16 13:11:33

We're going at Easter for the first time. Will be interesting to see differences compared to mid-Feb!

PestoSwimissimos Tue 01-Nov-16 13:28:59

We went at Easter this year, t'was lovely & warm but the slopes did get quite slushy by the afternoon. Was a bit like skiing through porridge and hard on the knees.

Top tip, ski on shadey pistes after lunch grin

dontcallmethatyoucunt Tue 01-Nov-16 15:35:35

Oooh pesto are you going to baqueira beret? I've heard really good things and want to go (if indeed you are).

lovetoski I love the south coast - I used to live in Pompey grin but met my DH and moved near london. I really miss the sea.... it's almost as good as snow. Almost.
I hope the job hunt is going well.

PestoSwimissimos Tue 01-Nov-16 15:46:19

Yes we are Cunty! I wanted a snow sure resort which wasn't too popular with Brits, due to it being Feb 1/2 term. Spent one year in hour long queues at Les Deux Alpes when we went the week after Christmas. It was soul destroying, not to mention bitterly cold - hence the choice this time.

lovetoskimum Tue 01-Nov-16 16:19:51

Glad more chat on this, Dont, yes love living here, even in Winter is nice to be by the sea !!! Though not a good as snow !!

Job hunt going well and got a few things lined up smile

Lets get more joining smile

dontcallmethatyoucunt Tue 01-Nov-16 17:36:18

pesto baqueria is on my radar after friends went last half term and said it was fab. Quiet, good snow, challenging in places and big enough to be varied. Report back!

My other target is Are in Sweden, I don't fancy France in the school holidays as much as I used to.

I'm glad things are moving on lovetoski

PestoSwimissimos Tue 01-Nov-16 20:50:32

Ooh! Nice to hear more good reports on Baqueira, will definitely report back once we've been too. It's been nearly 30 years since I last skiied in the Pyrenees, me & the late DH used to ski in Andorra because it was cheap & cheerful smile
